TPC Sawgrass: Hole 2
PAR 5, 532 YARDS
SCORING AVERAGE: 4.557
The first par-5 at TPC Sawgrass comes early, and it’s very reachable for most of the field – playing half-a-shot under par last year, even though long, narrow the green isn’t the easiest to hit. Oak and pine trees along the right pinch the landing area, with the second shot (if they’re going for it) played across a narrow lake and a strip of sand (which finishes well short of the green so it isn’t really in play).
If a player hits it too far left off the tee, they might be blocked out by the pines; there’s also swathes of rough down the left. If they do find the fairway, though, it’s a fairly standard approach. There are some deep pot bunkers to try and avoid on both sides of the green, and the swales around the green are mown tight, but anyone walking off here with a par will feel a little disappointed.
